There's definitely a better way to try and promote change and make efforts to influence public opinion with at least half the general population than going the "take my ball and go play somewhere else" route - particularly in this case as it deprived arguably the friendliest metropolitan area in the country for minority small business owners (ATL) of roughly $100M in economic activity when they could've damn sure used it and shipped it to a city consistently ranked near the bottom in that category(Denver). Oh well, at least the 5% of people in the US that are hyperactive on twitter who largely don't give two craps about baseball stopped feigning outrage for 5 seconds before going back to being perpetually grouchy.

In the end that All Star game move looked petulant and divisive and probably did more harm than good in the long run - pretty much Manfred's M.O. now that I think of it...

Regardless, I'm hoping they promote Mattress Mack to hand out the trophy - no matter who winds up winning the Series he's gonna come out a winner!

I'm not going to get into a discussion about all that but if you're going to make a political statement stick with it. Same with things the government in Texas has done lately too.



or better yet, keep politics out of sports all together...

I've found myself torn watching this series, usually rooting for the team that's behind.

Feels like the Series hasn't really gotten going yet. ATL-LA was such a tense duel, and these first two games have felt well-decided by the middle innings.

I think I'm going ATL just out of weird NL pride and a masochistic desire to be able to more legitimately claim the road to the title runs through Milwaukee, haha.

I don't really care who wins but I hope whoever does does it at home only to see Manfred get booed out of the building. Both fan bases have good reasons to boo this man. If the Braves win in Atlanta, he may as well just have someone else present the trophy.

Why would Houston boo Manfred? He's practically a folk hero for giving them a slap on the wrist for giving the game one of it's biggest black eyes in baseball history.

Everyone has this hate the Astros thing going but I just can not bring myself to hate someone like Altuve. Even with what happened in the past I still love watching Altuve hit.

Oh I so want Atlanta to finish this off tonight and make Manfred present the trophy in front of the Braves fans.

Mike Trout postseason career: 1 for 12.
Zack Greinke postseason career: 7 for 26.

I am shocked by the lack of starting pitching in this series. I will say that the Brewers will never have had a more wide open better chance to win a world series than this year. Especially with the dh coming in. Blown opportunity.

The Braves were pretty much considered the worst team in the postseason field, if they win the World Series it was a blown opportunity for everybody.

But not all blown opportunities are created equally, I'd say it was a bigger blown opportunity for the Astros (advanced to WS) or Dodgers ("best" team in baseball didn't win WS yet again) or Red Sox (advanced to ALCS) or Giants (won most games in MLB) or Rays (won most games in AL) than it was for the Brewers.

The offense wasn't going to get it done, most of us knew that...

There's so much randomness to the postseason that it isn't worth lingering on it too much.

The Brewers are 0 for 6 in making the World Series this century, but the Braves were 0 for 12 prior to this year. And then they make it to the World Series with a team that likely ranks near the bottom of those 13 groups in terms of talent.

It really feels like the Brewers missed a golden opportunity to make a run this Postseason. I’m fine with Atlanta [likely] winning it all, but it doesn’t make it sting any less.

If they had any offense they would had a shot this year. This one stings
